How many days can can coral frags such as SPS and LPS survive without lighting? Planning go on 8 days vacation and worry that LED lighting on with no one home.

Shorten the light period in half, I also leave only blue light on while I'm away. You should be fine.

I dont understand what the worry is if they are on a timer? Do they frequency not work as scheduled by the timer? Try getting a new timer, maybe the timer is shot.
